    • Allapattah Flats K-8 School o n si er rro is tP e m ou a F ith rit W rga The School District of St. Lucie County faced a need to deliver several new compact K-8 facilities on an ex- tremely tight schedule. A new prototype was developed to meet the specific programmatic needs of the St. Lucie ce a County School Board. The design delivers a school du s M comprised of a series of “protoparts”: modular classroom buildings, an assembly building and an administra- tion/media building linked by “connectors” containing staircases, toilets and other support spaces. A variety ro eli of connector modules is provided creating classroom buildings which can respond to varying site conditions and configurations. The modular classroom buildings are ep Ar designed as “pods” with large shared teaching spaces, supporting the district’s project-based and interactive learning pedagogy. The schools are designed with of interchangeable materials and façades to blend with the context in which they are located. N rty For Allapattah Flats, the exterior colors were chosen based on the surrounding community. Brighter versions R of these colors were brought into the interior. Each class- o e room pod was given its own color, while the administra- D op tion/ media building reflects a tasteful combination. In the ot serving line, color is used as a guide for the students. The gym displays school spirit in its use of green and Pr gold. The custom designed Reading Room, which shares space with the School Commons, is a prominent feature and a fun, colorful space for the K-Grade 3 children that use the space. The quotations found on the exterior walls of the Reading Room also give a sense of fun while reinforcing the joys of reading. The words and phrases found both in the School Commons and in the Media Center present the school motto and other statements to support this thought. The bespoke circula- tion desk includes two book drop areas with depressible carts and a transaction counter. Port St. Lucie, Florida

    • José Martí Park & Gymnasium o n si er rro is tP e m ou a F ith rit W rga ce a du s M The City of Miami wanted a community center and gymnasium facility as a part of José Martí Park. The project was a challenging addition due ro eli to the small size of the site, which runs underneath an I-95 overpass. The site is also bisected by a residential street and contains major utility ep Ar hubs feeding the City of Miami and Dade County. As a unique solution to the site’s size constraints and urban setting, the building is elevated to span the street, avoiding the underground communication cables and of water and sewer lines. This innovative move simultaneously saved the City money and created prominence for the community center. N rty The building itself is forward-looking in the expression of its design and is reflective of the new image being cultivated by of the City of Miami - R one of skyscrapers, glass and cosmopolitan living. The facility includes o e a gymnasium, a fitness center, an aerobics facility, locker rooms, admin- istrative offices, storage areas and a seating area for 500 people, which D op ot will provide an additional community meeting place for Miami residents. Pr The interior colors are inspired by the flag of Cuba, as the building is named for the country’s most famous hero and poet. The original tile pattern in the locker areas is elegant, while the angles in both the exterior and the interior architecture give modernity to the design. The custom-designed items, such as the signage and the basketball court acoustic panels, show an attention to detail. Miami, Florida

    • Pine Jog Elementary School and the FAU Pine Jog Environmental Education Center o n si er rro is tP e m ou a F ith rit W rga ce a The School District of Palm Beach County and Florida Atlantic University are pioneering a new direction for high performance schools in Florida. Their du s M respective missions are to inspire and excite Palm Beach County children and residents in the science and art of restoring the natural landscape and promoting our role as responsible citizens in safeguarding the planet’s natural resources. Collectively the partners are integrating the curriculum by combining ro eli both traditional and built environmental education to provide a comprehensive program of ecological awareness and stewardship. The entire 150-acre parcel ep Ar serves as an outdoor classroom and the two adjacent facilities share building systems and design features. Both facilities achieved LEED® Gold certification under the US Green Building Council’s LEED® for New Construction (NC 2.2), making Pine Jog Elementary the first LEED® Gold certified school in Florida. of The design has won other awards, such as the Florida Educational Facilities Planners Association: 2009 Blue Ribbon Award, Learning By Design Citation of N rty Excellence Award, Design Share 2008 Recognized Value Award, and American School & University: 2009 Gold Citation Educational Interiors Showcase. R o e The site’s flora and fauna are reflected in the interior via the colors, graphics, patterns and images that make up the interior design motif, which includes D op ot several large photo murals, and animal silhouette icons stenciled on walls for identity of “houses” within the school. Durable, polished concrete floors in assembly spaces and hallways all contain recycled fly ash. Classroom hallways Pr are central teaching areas with large windows to nature. Building systems are exposed to further accentuate the connection between natural resource use, energy and material conservation, and the application of renewable energy systems. Students, staff and the greater community are able to interact with building performance information via the internet through “green-screen” energy monitoring. Visitors to the Environmental Education Center are afforded the opportunity to tour the school grounds, participate in site stewardship activities and learn from the interactive displays associated with each of the buildings’ renewable energy systems. Custom signage describes LEED® features throughout the campus. West Palm Beach, Florida
